Information on Michael Spring's books:

 

 

Root of Lightning, Michael Spring's third book of poems, was a finalist for the 2012 Eric Hoffer Book Award.

 

"This is a book of poems, at once direct and clear-minded, full of passion and fight and assertive of a truly spirited person. This collection is full of active verbs and magic, bookended by two poems in which the writer announces he has found "the door in the river," and announces, at the end, that he has "planted," (it), "in the middle of the field," (and that he) "will leave it open." Spring understands the electric energy of healing and the power of the image in the process, as in the poem, "Song of the Healer," and offers us a book of medicine poems-rooted in earth and body wisdom, that have an extraordinary cleansing effect on the senses. They burn white hot, sizzling and soothing our cluttered, modern lives."

 

-- US Review of Books

 

 

Mudsong is Michael Spring’s second collection of poems. A selection of poems from Mudsong won the 2004 Robert Graves Poetry Award. It was also included in a list of 150 outstanding poetry books in Oregon's 150-year history, nominated by the public, and presented in 2007 by Oregon State Library and Poetry Northwest.

 

“In poems made of muck, time, magic and jazz, Michael Spring’s Mudsong reminds us that nature, ours and the world’s, is at once organic and mysterious. Spring’s art celebrates by paying attention – by resolving to slow down, be somewhere in particular and listen and look. With nods to Pierre Bonnard, Ornette Coleman and Mary Oliver, among others, the poems in Mudsong sing human with “the music…of the earth.”

blue wolf, most recent chapbook and Winner of the 2013 Turtle Island Poetry Award

 

"With the poems of blue wolf, Michael Spring creates a lyric terrain in which the borders between interior and exterior worlds dissolve, a place where "home is an invisible rope/ stretched tight// from one field to another," where a beckoning round widow is "more mouth than eye." In this magical realm, the poet-riding a pine tree's top in a storm-tells us he's "...simply traveling/ with the trees// thrashing into the numinous...." And we, his grateful readers, can travel with him.
